Yeah, But Which One?

Barack Obama:

We are the party of Kennedy.

Obviously, his speechwriter left out the words "keg" and "Ted".

Because there's no way he could be talking about Ted's brother, Jack, who understood the concept of lowering taxes to strengthen the economy and once uttered:

"Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom."

I don't care how many times the Obamapostles sitting behind the country's news desks repeat the Obama=JFK talking point. I ain't buying it. Being young with nice teeth does not make for an accurate ideological or philosophical comparison.
